to michael jackson. however, the most revealing detail is what he said about kim jong-un's wife. according to rodman, quote him again, she's a beautiful woman, very elegant and quite tall for a korean, maybe 5'5". she kept talking about their beautiful baby daughter. that is a pretty amazing revelation. we know almost nothing about kim jong-un's wife and the fact that the couple might have a child is a state secret. last year we saw her for weeks and until now some speculated some she was pregnant, some speculated she was not in favor, she dressed too showy. dennis rodman got the answer. it goes to show how much access he was given. it was also pretty amazing that kim jong-un has a daughter because north korea has a terrible reputation when it comes to women. just last week's north korea's military leaders dealt with the venomous south korea's prime minister's skirt, and yet his daughter is the first born and she was born and at this moment she is the heir and parent of north korea. as embarrassing as some people thought dennis rodman's trip was, north korea getting a female leader before

making process. obviously, there's a lot of speculation. people are wondering, did kim jong-un get the message that was delivered by china, by russia, and so many others, to dial back the rhetoric and all the talk of near war on the peninsula, missile strikes on the continental united states. did he hear that message? is that why we're seeing all of this? even some north korean experts say kim jong-un was painting himself into a corner with all of that. he was whipping up so much national fervor and getting people geared up to go to war that it could backfire on him. he could lose credibility or even worse, he can find himself in a position where he had to make good on some of those threats in order to maintain a standing in the eyes of his own people. there's little doubt, at this point, that over the course of the next hours and days, all eyes from washington to beijing, from here in seoul to moscow, are going to be on north korea and kim jong-un to try to see what he does say, to try to listen closely and find out what the next move of pyongyang will be. alison? >> okay, jim cla

rhetoric, threatening to rain death and destruction on the u.s. and south korea, kim jong un seems to have taken a day off. perhaps the north korean leader ran out of things to say. north korea had warned saturday that the korean peninsula had entered what it called a state of war and threatened to shut down a border factory complex that's the last major symbol of interkorean cooperation. in fact, the peninsula has been in a technical state of war for 60 years. for all the rhetoric including a vow to launch a nuclear strike on the u.s., experts believe a full-sized conflict is extremely unlikely. but the growing tensions during which the north has renounced an armistice and cut lines across have raised fears here that a misjudgment between the sides could lead to a clash which could easily escalate. don't forget, also, that the u.s. has just under 30,000 troops stationed here. for its part, the white house said this weekend that the u.s. is taking the new threat seriously but also noted that pyongyang does have a history of bellicose rhetoric. richard? >> ian williams, thank you so much. n
